Potassium

Potassium Information

Potassium is very important for general well-being. This essential mineral promotes muscle activity and nerve transmission. Potassium also works with Sodium to regulate the body's water balance. It is especially vital for the beating of your heart. Potassium gluconate is used to prevent or to treat potassium deficiency. Most healthy individuals get the required amounts of potassium from a healthy diet. Potassium supplementation is very specific, based upon low blood potassium levels and generally completed under medical supervision.

Potassium Benefits

  • Controls the distribution and balance of water throughout the body
  • Helps maintain pH balance throughout the body
  • Blood pressure is partially regulated by potassium and studies suggest that potassium can reduce blood pressure
  • Also involved in the conversion of stored sugar (glycogen) into a form more useful to the body.
  • Targeted clinical applications for potassium include use in preventing cardiac arrhythmias
  • Commonly used in patients with congestive heart failure because many medications used to treat the disease often deplete the body of potassium
  • Individuals with a diet high in potassium may have a lower risk of developing kidney stones

Potassium Notes

The Dietary Supplement Informaton Bureau recommends typically not more than 250mg to 2,000mg of potassium supplement daily, which is approximately equal to 6mEq to 50 mEq of potassium. In cases of low blood levels of potassium, doses greater than 3,900mg (100mEq) per day may be used.
